Mutton Biryani in Oven [Layered Mutton Biryani]

I am happily posting my 100th post, layered mutton biryani in oven. Try out this biryani you will never forget the taste of it. I usually prefer to make biryani in oven when it is for large crowd, it is simple and easy as well.

Here’s the yummy mutton biryani with step by step photos…


Ingredients

Mutton/Goat meat
1 kg cut to big pieces
Onions
3 large cubed
Tomatoes
3 chopped finely
Green chillies
10 slit length wise
Mint leaves
From one bunch
Coriander leaves
3 tbsp finely chopped
Ghee + Oil
3 tbsp
Cinnamon
2 sticks
Bay leaves
2
Cloves
2
Fennel seeds (perunjeeragam)
¼ tsp
Star anise
2
Cardamom
2
Japathri (mace)
1
Nutmeg powder
One pinch
Salt
As needed
Food color
One pinch, mix in 2 tsp of water keep it aside
Cashew nuts
6 sliced

To Marinate

Yogurt
½ cup
Ginger & garlic paste
1 tbsp
Red chilli powder
2 tbsp (adjust according to your taste)
Coriander powder
1 tbsp
Garam masala powder
1 tsp
Black pepper powder
¼ tsp
Turmeric powder
½ tsp
Salt
As needed
Lemon juice
From ½ lemon

For Rice

Basmati rice
4 cups
Cloves
2
Cardamom
2
Cinnamon stick
1 stick
Bay leaves
2
Oil
1 tsp
Salt
As needed

For Fried onions

Onions
1 cup thinly sliced
Oil
2 tsp

Method

Clean, cut and wash the mutton pieces. Now add the ingredients mentioned for marinating to the mutton and marinate for atleast 1 – 2 hrs.

To make fried onions, heat oil in a pan and add 1 cup of thinly sliced onions and fry till it starts to caramelize and keep it aside.

Wash and soak the rice for 10 min, cook it in plenty of water along with ingredients mentioned above. Strain the water completely when the rice is half done. (Do not cook the rice fully). Cool it in a plate and keep it aside.


In a pressure cooker, heat ghee and oil together. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, bay leaves, fennel seeds, star anise, japathri, cardamom, cashew nuts and sauté for 20 sec. Now add the cubed onions, green chillies and sauté until golden brown. Now add the tomatoes, nutmeg powder, handful of mint and coriander leaves and sauté well until mushy.


Now add the marinated mutton along with all the masala and sauté. Cook the mutton for 3 whistles or until done. Actually water separates when you sauté the meat, so you don’t need to add water.

Now grease oven safe dish with oil/ghee. Start layering by dividing rice to 3 parts and cooked mutton to 2 portions. Spread a layer of rice in the oven safe dish, then a layer of mutton. Sprinkle mint, coriander leaves, fried onions and ¼ tsp of food color.


Again spread another layer of rice followed by mutton masala, mint, coriander leaves, fried onions and ¼ tsp of food color. Finally spread one layer of rice and garnish with coriander leaves, fried onions and 1 tsp of ghee. Cover with Aluminium foil or a tight lid.


Pre heat the oven to 180˚C and place biryani inside and allow it cook for 10 to 12 min or till it’s done.


Yes yummy and spicy layered mutton biryani is ready to be served. Serve it hot with mutton gravy or raitha and boiled egg.

  16. Hi Priya,

    Mutton biriyani is my all time favourite ,but currently I dont own an oven :(, can the layers be arranged in a thick copper bottom vessel closed with lid(in traditional way of dum biryani) ? can this be followed instead of the oven ?
    Also , instead of food colour , can saffron dissolved in warm water be used ?Will it give the same authentic taste?

    Thanks for your valuable comments :):)

    1. Hi Reshma,
      You actually don't need an oven to do this layered biryani. You can do the same layers in the heavy bottomed vessel as said and keep the dum and also you can use the saffron which is just perfect...
      Thanks dear, try out the biryani and enjoy...
      keep in touch
